If you’ve ever spent time with a club scholarship recipient, you know the power of your investments in action - young teachers inspiring elementary students to dream big dreams, researchers who went on to grad school with the self confidence and inquisitiveness you helped fire, and a new generation of leaders who embody the best of what we define as a Spartan’s Will.
#GIVE GREEN DAY 2018
Michigan State University’s university-wide Day of Giving, #GIVEGREENDAY, was held on Tuesday,
November 27, 2018 in conjunction with Giving Tuesday – a global day of giving. From 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. EST, Spartan supporters worldwide were invited through social media, email, and on-campus events to participate in #GiveGreenDay by giving their support either financially or by helping spread the word via their own social media channels. During the 24-hour period, Spartans and friends had the opportunity to support alumni club scholarships.
Thank you to everyone involved in #GiveGreenDay! Final numbers for the day are $931,098.52 raised from over 4,000 gifts. Alumni clubs played a major role - 67 alumni clubs helped generate contributions to a record $136,303.86 from 888 gifts.
